What's weird is that, I have a 32x10x40 burner and it never burns faster than 24x. I can't set it higher either. I was thinking that my system sucked for the job. Turns up I buy a AXP 3000+ A7N8X Deluxe, and the damn thing doesn't burn faster than 24x! I can't even set it higher. I use nero and EZ CD creator 5. Now, definately, there is something wrong. Do any of you experience the same symptoms? Or howabout, do you guys bear the solution?
